In 1999, I lost my husband to cancer. I was 47 at the time, and it took awhile to sort through my emotions and gather the strength to face daily living again. I stopped teaching and felt utterly drained of spirit. All that I had accomplished meant nothing, and I was quite surprised when the urge to write a book on the everythings of my complicated life came to me in a night’s dream. I woke one morning with a new calling; six chapters spilled out of me and by the time I completed The Water Dance, I was back in business teaching, writing, and reaching out to other grievers. This 247 page book is a memoir of my life, its hardships and gifts, leading up to the death of my husband and how I managed to endure it.
